GPs are more confident on MMR but doubts linger

Regarding the story 'GPs lose thousands in vaccine pay shock' (News, April 30), the Department of Health's response to justify this funding reduction is interesting.

'Because the introduction of the five-in-one vaccine has reduced GP workload', they can reduce the payment.

Does this not set a precedent that we should now follow? Surely every single thing the department and the Government does that increases our workload must have an additional payment. This should be everything, because it seems to me that we need to make a stand as GPs.

Many people before have said: 'Maybe our negotiators need to be professional negotiators.'

It is clear to me that we keep getting misled, 'conned' and led up the garden path by the department's negotiators.
